If there’s one thing we know about Chrissy Teigen, it’s that she’s not afraid to keep things real— even when it’s at her expense.

John Legend fans recently took to Twitter to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of John’s song “Green Light” featuring Andre 3000. Chrissy responded to one of the Tweets from a fan, sharing that she was on set during the filming of the music video— and she wasn’t happy.

“Fun fact, I had a jealously-fueled meltdown visiting this video set and made an asshole out of myself to a large group of people.”

After her followers begged for more information, Chrissy shared what happened in a series of Tweets:

“Oh you want to know more, do you? Let me try to remember. 10 years is a long time,
she started. “It began with our friends (john’s managers and co-writers and a couple others) talking about how BEAAAAAAUUUUTIFUL some of the women were. And they were! But in my mind they not only were talking about it, they were talking about it on purpose to rile me up. Looking back and knowing how well I know them now, THEY WERE DEFINITELY RILING ME UP AND GETTING A KICK OUT OF IT.”

She said she was watching John film with a woman as the guys continued to egg her on. “I was watching the monitor with all the guys and someone, I can’t remember who, said, “ooooooo look at that girl with john ooooooooo!” so I watched the monitor like a psychotic (tarantula) hawk and in my mind, oh he was in trouble.”

She paused to remind fans that she actually met John on the set of one of his videos. “Keep in mind john and I met on a video. I was that girl! I know how this shit works!”

She said she saw John laugh at something the woman said, which only sent her further into a spiral. “He probably laughed at something she said. And in my mind it was some GRAND conversation I was conjuring up. They were probably just talking about craft services honestly but in my mind she was like “hey we should bone” and he was like “haha f*** yeah!”

She ended up losing it and running away from the set. “A few more shoulder touches and laughs with her later, I lost it. Anger turned to sobbing turned to fleeing the set and getting a hotel room. The director (ALAN FERGUSON!) was baffled. Everyone was.”

Chrissy blamed it on being 22, jealous and angry. “BUT DON’T TEST ME,” she closed. Oh, Chrissy.
